    Ok just finnished mixing this.

    Think I got them drums better on this tune.

    Last tune to be mixed before me and the missus go on a well deserved vacation.

    Tune is played by my band, at rehearsal.
    some overdubds are made, most is done live.

    recording is done with a Firepod Interface.

    SE1 sdc`s on overheads.
    B52 on kick
    Sm57 on snare and toms

    Bass is DI`d through an Ampeg.

    Guitars : all sm57.

    Vox : Mxl v67g.

    Here`s the link.

    THe quaver/wavering of the notes at the end of phrases in the intro should be either accentuated or eliminated if possible.
    The 1st change has a very COTCentury Supertramp vibe - probably added to by the prominant keyboards.
    But then again it's also VERY Gabriel era Genesis - then that great little vocal section that it SSSOOO Queen II.
    THEN funky riffing... I'm not sure I like the rotopan on the organ - normally I love it but I actually wanted to listen more closely to that section so it was distractinging. The roll along boogie section needs a focus it's fun but carries on a little long without a killer guitar solo.
    In the return to quiet there's a pumping hiss or is that shares brushes - oh, live probably the share rattling in sympathy with smoething.
    Cool declaimatory guitar/horns near the end.
    Sudden ending!
    mate, lots of high quality stuff! may need a little pruning or seasoning but it was fun and not boring at any stage.
    Have a good break and come back with fresh ideas for more songs.

    Great job on vocals...lead singer reminds me of Fish from Marillion at times...very cool!! Cool change around the 3:40 mark...bass guitar seems just a little lite in the mix..pretty cool tune!

    Excellent tune Nak - so very creative, melodic and intricate. Sounds good overall, no mix issues for me. Your arrangements are perfect classic rock - like the 70's when musicians ruled!

    I agree 10000%. This is sick.

    I just jerked off to the solo that starts at about 5:45.

    ...............wow.



    I like how you aren't afraid to let it all hang out.

    Great combination of instruments. I'd like to hear a little more room in the drum mix.

    GREAT guitar solo. Steve is going to love this one. It's very pretty.


    Nice work, you Norwegian Bastard.

    Thanks Ray.

    This tune is still on the choppin block.

    I agree with you on the boogie part.

    The snare issue, is caused by the bassamp, as we recorded live with amps and all in one room.

    I look forward into shaping it more once I come back from my vacation
